RSW's Diary Comments

“Painted about 1938. Made of Harrison Keach’s pasture from back of his house.”

Comments on the back of a sepia print:

“(I feel this would be an effective companion with the barn picture you have.) The reproduction lacks the Spring atmosphere and sparkle of the painting. This is really a portrait of a melting snow-drift on the hillside. The evergreens are dark bluish-greens similar in color to the pines in your barn picture. The background hill in delicate Spring violet tones. Sky is April-blue with white clouds, more brilliant and sunlit than photograph indicates. Foreground tawny, yellowish green, but NOT giving the effect of a green canvas.”
